    I have an opportunity to buy a Military CUCV M1009 Pickup (the 1985/6? 3/4 ton). Can anybody tell me what axles these trucks have in them? Are they Dana 60s or Corporate 14 bolts or a combination of the 2. Also what trans/transfer is in it. The truck I'm looking at is complete except for the engine. Anyone have any experience with these trucks?

    if it is the military pickup it will be a dana 60 front and a 14 bolt rear.

    tranny and t case should be a turbo 400 with a 205.

    pretty much the strongest stuff out there

    The brackets that DERBINATOR makes are excellent quality and affordably priced at $100.00 delivered to your door. The rest is home brewed from front rotors and either rear 76-78 caddy eldo calipers or front truck calipers if you don't care for an e-brake.

    It's not a 205, 90% of these trucks have 208's. It sounds wierd but it's true. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    KidJethro is right, 90% (or more) of the military trucks have a 208 t-case. The 205 was more common in civilian trucks than the military issue stuff. A general rule of thumb is that a mid 80's truck would usually need to be a 4 door to have had a 205 t-case. I'm not saying the 2 doors didn't have them just that by far the majority were equipped with 208's.

    Most all of those trucks are 83 or 84 year model (can't remember which) also.

    An M1009 is a Blazer, not a pickup.

    CUCV Blazers were classified as "3/4" tons instead of "1/2" tons. These M1009's have 10 bolt axles, front and rear. No D60 or 14FF on the M1009's.
